Oh yeah, that’s me pressing my squeezed fists to make my biceps bulge to magnificent proportions!
Now that I have your attention, I have been reading a lot recently about the work one must do around what one puts in one’s mouth, compared to the time one spends exercising. You know the phrase “abs are made in the kitchen” (or not made in the kitchen I forget). However, as I move forward with the Movable Beast one of my “truths” will be that you will find whole foods here, and whole food advice here, as I work towards my nutritionist qualification. I have recently started pulverizing my own version of protein powder by throwing pumpkin seeds, any nuts that happen to be handy, almonds, walnuts whatever, into the food processor. When I make my morning smoothie, this home made powder ends up providing my vegetable protein, instead of whey protein or other protein powder from sources unknown.
Though I am tempted to buy green powders as well, my jury is still out. I am hoping my handful of kale, some frozen spinach nuggets and maybe some wheat grass (someday) will do the job.
Anyway come to think of it, the stress over food can’t do us any good can it? So just continue to read lots. I like Nutrition Action Healthletter, Consumer Reports On Health, and the Mayo Clinic health letter, and anything else I can get my hands on. I am like a magnet for free-publications-by-the-exit-door. Educate yourself. Eat simply. No junk. Whole grains. different grains, unbleached, unrefined, unprocessed, un-enriched, stone ground. Go on, live a little!
